Bij FBTT Travel verwerkten we onze payroll met Payroll4-software. De maand oktober hebben we schaduw gedraaid met Celery software en de uitkomst is opmerkelijk: bij exact hetzelfde aantal werknemers en dezelfde bruto loonsom kwam Celery ruim ANG 2.200 p/m lager uit qua belastingen en premies.
Dat blijkt met name veroorzaakt te worden doordat Celery bij lage-loners de BVZ en AVBZ-premie correct en volgens de wet berekend. Ook bleken we ZV-premie af te dragen voor werknemers die op basis van hun aantal werkdagen per week niet ZV-verzekerd konden zijn. Celery controleert welke sociale premies wel en niet van toepassing zijn, en ook al staan sommige premies wel aangevinkt, past Celery ze niet toe op basis van de instellingen in de werknemers.
Ook werden in Payroll4 fiscale toeslagen ten onrechte toegepast, bijvoorbeeld Ouderentoeslag bij een werknemer jonger dan 60. Dat zou niet mogelijk moeten zijn, hetgeen in Celery ook niet mogelijk is. Celery checkt namelijk geboortedata e.d. Gelet op dit laatste verschil tussen Celery en Payroll4 zou het verschil in de totale belastingen en premies nog groter zijn dan alleen de genoemde ANG 2.200 per maand.
Celery vraagt een maandelijkse vergoeding voor het gebruik van de software, maar verdient zich dubbel en dwars terug door het voorkomen van onjuiste afdrachten van premies die niet betaald hoeven te worden.

I heard that an accounting & tax services firm had switched to Celery, and that they were extremely happy with the product. I contacted them and they came over immediately and helped me migrate Mederi. Celery was so simple that I managed to migrate Mango entirely on my own and ran the payrolls effortlessly. Whenever I have a question, Celery support response time is very quick and we were able to resolve everything swiftly. This, to me, is great!

Celery bevalt heel goed. Zeer overzichtelijk en gebruiksvriendelijk. Zeer prettig om alles online op één plaats te hebben, zoals bijvoorbeeld alle gegevens van de employees. Als je een beetje kennis hebt van payroll dan is het programma nagenoeg ‘self-supported’. Ander pluspunt is de snelle en deskundige support.

Celery is way more user friendly than our former payroll software, faster and direct to the point.
Ricardo de Freitas,
NAGICO officially begun using Celery as of March 2016 at our Head Office location in St. Maarten. Overtime, we have noticed that Celery continues to make enhancements in the user's interest. The Celery team is open for feedback and feature requests that would help make Celery a better product resulting in a 'win win' situation for us at no additional cost.
As for support, navigating the system and finding answers to queries have been made easy with the built in explanatory notes and a growing database of frequently asked questions. Timing is extremely crucial for payroll administrators and Celery understands this. In cases where our payroll administrators need one-on-one support, email responses are always received within a short turnaround time (on average within the hour) and ultimately resolved the same day. In addition, support has been available during the evening hours and weekends. On one occasion, one of our payroll administrators was unsuccessful in reaching Matthew via telephone and immediately thereafter received an email from him advising he received a missed call from our company and wanted to know how he could assist. This is an example of the kind of personal and professional approach that the Celery team provides.
Being a payroll expert, Matthew and team have been a great resource to us in consulting on various payroll related matters from time to time and ensuring that our payroll administration is compliant with local regulations. The quality of support not only aims to provide answers on how tasks should be done in Celery but most importantly educates on why it should be done this way. Every correspondence leads to a learning opportunity which has further enhanced the overall experience of being a Celery client. Overall, we continue to be satisfied with Celery and look forward to continued patronage.

Celery deserves an 8 because of the completeness, ease of use and good price-performance ratio.

Midtown Medical Clinic SXM - switched from Payroll Pro Ultra to Celery:
"I must say that the program is super easy. Love the fact that I can use it anywhere by internet!"
Mercuur Health Clinic N.V.
We have switched from Payroll4 to Celery because we prefer to process our payroll online. We tested the online version of Payroll4, but it is the same software that, for example, lacks the BVZ Exemption & Gliding Scale. In addition, we saw online Payroll4 documents from another (for us unknown!) salary administration. That did not create much trust in their online payroll solution.
On the other hand, Celery came with a significantly lower SVB declaration because Celery uses the SVB daily wage premium calculation which results in lower ZVOV premiums. We also paid ZV premium in Payroll4 for an employee that worked 2 days per week. That is impossible in Celery, so this ZV premium was not applied in Celery. So, Celery costs are earned back quickly this way!
Cardiologie Praktijk Romer,
Celery works perfect, is user-friendly and fast!

Celery deserves a 10! Celery is not only user friendly and very easy to use but also the support that you get from the team whenever you need it is tremendous. I tried to find a fault in the software and/or the service but gave up. They are the best solution for our payroll. I also like the updates that we get regarding the SVB and Ontvanger and the support has never deviated, they are always there to patiently help you out with any questions.
At Bay West, we processed our payroll administration of January in Payroll4 software first and after that again in Celery. The total employer wage costs in Celery were ANG 2,600 per month less than in Payroll4. And several employees had an increase in their net salary in Celery. That is because Celery is applying the BVZ Exemption and the BVZ Gliding Scale. And by checking the number of working days per week, Celery also prevents ZV premium to be included in pay slips of employees that are not ZV insured.
G.S. Wolfert, Financial Manager,
Celery deserves a 9 based on my positive experience and the simplicity.
The Color of People,
Celery werkt voor ons super. De redenen dat we overgestapt zijn:
Vriendelijk om mee te werken
Niet te veel commando’s
Makkelijk om veranderingen te maken
Heel innovatief dat werknemers hun eigen loonstroken en Loonopgaven in hun werknemersaccount kunnen opvragen en bekijken
In onze vorige software bij het verkeerd invoeren van een contract kan je geen payroll draaien. Je moest contract gaan deleten en helemaal opnieuw gaan invoeren. In Celery heet het niet eens een contract maar heet het gewoon data-entry per werknemer wat het ook is
In Celery is de HRM-module superhandig voor de werknemers
Celery is voor ons de beste keus.
Celery is user friendly, reduces work for administration and the software is capable of handling complex payrolls.
At Papagayo, we switched from Payroll4 software to Celery. Especially processing the monthly changes is very easy in Celery, because I can see all possible changes and employees in just one screen. In Payroll4, I had to switch to a different employee to process each change. Celery has also saved us a lot of time, because most of our employees now receive and view their pay slips online. This means that we no longer have to print and distribute pay slips to those employees that have their own Celery account.
Celery deserves a 10 because it is very user friendly & efficient. Celery is way better than payroll software I used before!

Celery software is easy to use. Data processing is fast and efficient. It’s also very easy to search for specific data you already generated in the past.
Roseline M. Kelie,
Celery deserves an 8 because I think this is the most friendly salary software I ever experienced. I love the fact Celery is accessible from everywhere by the internet.
Abaque Financial Solutions
Celery is a very user-friendly software package. I started using it without any instruction and it is all self-explanatory. I am very satisfied and pleasantly surprised with the possibilities the online payroll software has to offer. Of all the payroll software programs I have worked with, this is the most modern one. A software package that keeps up with the times. My compliments to its developers.
Payroll processing; Easy to use, clearly laid out and convenient!

Automation is an improvement on service in every respect. I like the fact that I can now download my overviews through Celery and that they are stored there. It is quicker and more efficient.
